Slides + URLs from NNUG talk 29th of February 2012

Yesterday, Pavneet Singh Saund and I held a talk for NNUG Vestfold about modern Web development using the MVVM pattern and compositional UIs.

The slides can be found here.

In addition we talked about a few things, these are the resources of the talk :


I did mention and tried to demo another site I’m working on, which was down at the time – but up now :

Geekrider – it shows navigation of features, using Bifrost.

and lastly, the actual demo app we did can be found here. We did also show the inkFinder that was developed at Komplett that uses Knockout and MVVM, which you can find here.


Removed ratings

Recently I’ve had a couple of strange ratings on posts here. People, in plural, rating simple posts that basically just announce a talk to a 1 out of 5 and not leaving a comment. That just messes with my head. There is no way I can improve posts when there is just a bunch of negative rating but no comments. As a consequence, I decided to remove ratings all together – hopefully forcing people to engage in a conversation instead.

If there is something you don’t like in a post, or the entirety of a post – please don’t hesitate to post a comment. I’m very open to listening to feedback, but I can’t just read into the lack of a star and figure out what I’m doing wrong.


Community, JavaScript

NNUG Vestfold talk, 29th of February 2012

On the 29th of February, Pavneet Singh Saund and myself will be holding a talk about modern web development for NNUG Vestfold.

For years, for a lot of developers, the Web has been a mess and JavaScript has not made that mess any better. There has been a lot of improvement over the years and a lot of efforts in bringing structure as well as promoting JavaScript into a first class citizen of your every day application development. The topic of the talk will be around this, how can you as a developer work with JavaScript and stop having the feeling that it is just something you have to do, but don’t like to do.

Here’s the agenda.
